Go with Teix. He's already a stud and hes only 25. Imagine when he's 29! Should have plenty of 40+ HR seasons. ;-D

I'd go for Sheets or Sheffield. Or even Jeter. Just depends on the direction you want the team to go in, and if you want to win this year or wait for the future (I always suggest playing for the current season).

EDIT: Oh yeah forgot about Crawford... but with Beltran already the SB's would just be redundant and one would have to be traded at some point probably.

Yes but you can then concentrate on people who get no stolen bases but are good in other cats instead of a bunch of 15/15 guys

Yes but regardless, Crawford's value to you goes down once you have Beltran. Even without Beltran, I rate Sheff and Sheets above Crawford.

Interesting question... I have a similar problem in my keeper (am taking Vlad with 4th pick).
I think Sheffiled, while good, might turn into this year's Giambi. Even if he doesn't, he's 36, this is a keeper, and you already have drafted an outfielder. So I don't think that would be a smart play.
IMO, all 2nd round pitchers worth taking are gone, and you'd be massively overpaying to take Sheets in the 2nd round.
I think Crawford is a steal there, I've seen him go late first round in some drafts. If you can get him, in a keeper league, he's a lock, and great trade bait, if you're savvy enough to trade him to someone who needs him more later in the year.
People rave about the depth of 1b, but if you don't get one of the top six, you will be struggling for power all year. I personally think it comes down to Tex or a guy like Ortiz. In a keeper, I'll give the slight edge to Tex.
So for me, I'd ignore pitching until round 3, grab a Peavy or Zambrano at the point who will give you close to similar numbers, and go after either Crawford or Tex.
